The rarest Innotruck truck is on sale in Germany. It was the last completed work of the famous designer Luigi Colani, who died in 2019 at the age of 92. The announcement was posted on the JamesEdition website.
Kolani invented Innotruck for Siemens in 2012. During construction, he was assisted by employees of the Technical University of Munich. In total, two copies were created. One of them belongs to the Kolani family, and the second was put up for sale.
- The main feature of Innotruck is the "floating" single-seat cockpit, made in the style of a fighter cockpit. All controls have no mechanical connection with the reciprocal elements - electronic signals are sent through wires to the wheels, brakes and other components. Behind the cockpit, there is a large lounge with a kitchenette, several tables and a long sofa.
- Innotruck is equipped with electric motors and a generator, which is a diesel engine. Now the truck is not on the move - the conversion of the hybrid power plant to an all-electric one has not yet been completed.
- The seller promises to announce the cost of Innotruck only on a specific request. He also notes that the truck has not passed certification and is prohibited from driving on normal roads.
Designer Luigi Colani has authored over 4,000 inventions since the 1950s. He has also designed concept cars for Ferrari, Ford, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and other automakers, but Luigi is best known for his futuristic trucks.
